We had the good fortune of connecting with Lee Gutierrez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lee, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I’ve been into fitness since 1999 I had a long hard road to were I am now but it doesn’t get easier but what in life is easy everything is a challenge and I’ve been challenging myself since I started. I would be in the gym for hours working on my body my form trying to perfect my craft and people notice your hard work and the changes your body goes through from pushing yourself to the limit and people would always come to me for advice and always asking how do I get like you my reply would be hard work and consistency and that when I decided to enroll into a course to become a personal trainer in 2009 and that when I started training a bunch of great clients and it just grew from there started working at a big gym but the pay sucked lol so I decided to do bootcamps at the park for a year was going great but sometimes the weather wouldn’t let me train so I had to go work for a couple other gyms while I saved my money to open my own gym it was a long process but with the support of all my clients who became friends to me we made it happen Lee Houston Fitness was finally open on the East Side of Houston

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
